Workshop speaker:
Sunspots, not fossil fuels, agents of climate change 
A third of the world could face starvation
______________________________

21 Jan 09 - Gary Sides, a cattle nutritionist for Pfizer Animal Health, argues that changes in sunspot activity, not greenhouse gases, are primarily responsible for global climate change.

Based on recent sunspot activity, Sides told ranchers attending the fifth-annual Cattleman's Workshop, global warming appears to be giving way to a period of global cooling that could signal the next mini ice age.

The standing-room-only crowd erupted into cheers when Sides said he believes that evidence supporting the sunspot theory of global warming and cooling is winning over scientists around the world.

The theory that sunspot activity drives global climate change could have major implications on the world's food supply, Sides said.

Pointing to temperatures 10 to 20 degrees below normal in many regions this winter, and to snow and sub-freezing weather that hit as late as June 11 last spring in Oregon and other western states, he recommended that ranchers get ready for cooler climate, not warmer. 

“Laughter filled the conference center when Sides joked that he became a believer in stories about the U.S. military allegedly recovering a crashed spacecraft and alien bodies near Roswell, N.M., in 1947, when he learned that Gore was born nine months after the incident.

“Sides said he believes that groups pushing to end the use of fossil fuels and to return parts of America to wilderness don't realize that without modern tractors and other farm machinery, fertilizers, pesticides and medicines, crop and livestock production would plunge so far that a third of the world's population could face starvation.”
